One of my favorite authors!!
"Lost things. They claw through the membranes, attempting to summon our attention through an indecipherable mayday. Words tumble in helpless disorder. The dead speak. We have forgotten how to listen."

This is a non fiction about thoughts in Patti Smith‘s head. It‘s an easy read, some parts I found interesting and I enjoyed her perspective on life. Her use of dialogue drove me batty. She listed her dialogue with these at the beginning: - . Why? As much as I enjoyed it, my mind did wander quite a bit as I read this.

I enjoyed reading something outside of what I‘d usually read, and I loved her artist‘s perspective and her life experiences.

xicanti Dashes instead of quotation marks is very much a non-English thing, but a few English-speaking writers adopt it too (presumably because they think it's fancy). Personally, I find it creates a distance between me and the dialogue, so I struggle to connect with writers who do it. 2y
SharonAlger @xicanti, I agree. 2y
